well the one good thing about the pro 4 it comes with every hop-up you can think of. As far as equipment and good futaba, JR or airtronics radio with a highspeed servo will do. I would go with a GT7 novak speedo. And motor wise really depends on class and track you are racing on

You can get could quality second hand electrics (most of my electrics are second hand ) and they would work fine. Just go on ebay and search and then go race

What about batteries, im looking at epic im gonna maybe run an epic 12 turn, should i get 4 or 6 cells? the 2 less cells might be nice cuz of light weight but would it be too light?

Exclamation

Get the FT TC3 you won't get wrong plus the customer support are great.. modified parts are available almost in every hobby shops..

radio get the Jr XS3 synthesized.. o need to buy lots o cyrstals just to avoid glitches during the race.. dial in your freq. then go ahead to the race track..

electronics, get the novak GT7 esc or keyence, motor get the corally, reedy, or monster or p2k2 they are great motors. But if budget is not a problem get the brushless motor S5800 it already comes with the ESC matched to its specs this is less maintenace motor and in a long run its less co'z you won't be needing brushess and no need to lathe the com after evry 3 runs..

battery I say stay with the 3300's sanyo or fukuyama or GP are great batteries especially the zapped/matched ones.

tires, I only used sorex or HPI..

chager get the quassar or turbo 35 gfx..


HAPPY RACING !!!!!!!!!!!
